Meet Mom of Reinvention, Judy Goss

judyheadshotfinished.jpegRole Mommy: What did you do before you became a mom?
Judy: I was a modeling agent for Ford and NY Models, a casting director and producer for photo shoots, and before that a model.
Role Mommy: When did you decide to reinvent your life?
Judy: When I got laid off too many times within a short time – I finally decided that I wanted to be in control of my work environment and length of time that I work.
Role Mommy: How have your children influenced your career path? How many do you have?
Judy: I have 5-year old twins (they will be 5 in July) and they have made me realize that I’m not going to be young forever, and doing what I love to do was the only option for me now.
Role Mommy: What’s your favorite “Time Out” tip for moms (taking time for yourself)
Judy: Making a scheduled day and time – even if it’s for one hour – to have time for yourself. For example, at one point I would go get my nails done between 10 and 11:30 on Sunday mornings before my husband went to work…sounds impossible, but once you get in the routine it’s effective!
BreakIntoModeling-1.jpgRole Mommy: What does your website offer moms or kids?
Judy: My website offers education about getting into the modeling industry through my book that came out last fall. Break into Modeling for Under $20 Also, I have a blog that hopefully inspires and motivates people in the modeling/acting industry, but also in their sense of self.
Role Mommy: What do you hope for your own kids?
Judy: To be happy, and to inspire people to be the best they can be by becoming that way themselves.
Role Mommy: Who is your Role Mommy?
Judy: My friend Karen who lives in Florida – she is a single Mom who overcame incredible odds, and I hope to be half the mother that she is every single day.
